Geeky Stereotypes - Who are you?
It is nice to hear that I've played some of the same games as you guys out there, makes me feel more comfortable in my choices ;) Lately I have been doing some researches about geek stereotypes, and apparently it exists.
Not everyone can fit underneath this picture and its types in my opinion, but I still think it is a bit funny, cause personally I have met a few people from my online games IRL, and it is so much fun to figure out if you look like a geek or not. I have seen lots of pictures of people I play games with, and it is always a bit fun to check each other out and maybe go like: "Omg I would never have thought you looked like that?", might it be in a good or bad way ;) But mostly I am surprised in the positive way, lots of the geeks out there aren't that bad looking as we might think!
Cause when you think of a geek these words automatically pops into your mind: Fat, sofa sitting, coke, pizza, glasses, greasy hair, bad looking and not very stylish.
But that image surely have changed in a very good way :) Personally I have only seen one person in the last 3 years which filled in all those things and more to ! But lets not point any fingers, it could have been me! And besides, who doesnt like to be a coke, pizza and sofa sitting monster once in a while ;) I do at least!
But anyway back to the Stereotypes;Which one would you be? One from the picture or a totally different one?
